What’s this?

I noticed this white looking spiral lines in two of the corners of my tank.

Looks like it could be eggs, possibly from a nudibranch. What do you have in the tank?

They look like Cerith snail eggs IMO. You might find some babies roaming around the tank later on, but most of them will either be eaten by somehing else or removed from the system via a skimmer, filter sock etc.
